Senegal and Napoli defender Kalidou Koulibaly is reportedly being chased by two European giants in Real Madrid and Manchester United.

Media reports in Italy reveal that the Napoli star defender is being monitored by the Red Devils and the Los Blancos.

According to Calciomercato, United and Madrid are interested in the defender, who's been one of Napoli's best performers in recent years.

Koulibaly's contract with the Partenopei expires in 2021, giving the Italian Serie A side some leverage should Jose Mourinho or Zinedine Zidane enter negotiations for the defender this summer.

Although it was previously announced that Chelsea expressed their desire to sign the defender last summer, Koulibaly's agent then quickly came out to cool those rumours, as he confirmed that Napoli shouldn't be worried.

"Does De Laurentiis have to be worried about Chelsea's interest in the player? I wouldn't say so, no," Bruno Satin then told Radio CRC.

However, with Napoli once again crashing out of the UEFA Champions League, while Juventus have widened the gap in the league, it's possible that Koulibaly could leave this summer to seek a new experience.
